Default recycling yarns

Does anyone on this list go to places like the Salvation Army to purchase
old sweaters just for the yarn? If so, what's your experience been like?

I often have :-)

It takes an evening or two to take out the seams very patiently, and then just pull the knitted out along as it was knitted -
rolling into a ball as I go.

I get in a mood for it once in a while, and do afew sweaters (UNdo afew sweaters) in a row.
